I have a question regarding a old laptop today I have. Its a toshiba a135 series. The hard drive went out on it. I found a replacement that I would love to through in. my question is, is there anything from the old hard drive that would cause the laptop not to boot up after replacing the hard drive? I'm not worried about the OS cause I have been running linux on it for awhile. Is it as simple as swapping hard drives and reinstalling linux? Or is it more to it? When it comes to hardware replacement im a damn noob lol. Thanks for any advice/pointers.

Yes, it's that simple. Replace the drive and install the OS.
